Patio or Decking?
CPS Landscapes are a landscaping Brighton service that provides all manner of gardening services including decking. But when is decking the right choice?
We know that circumstances and setting can have a huge impact on deciding which landscaping option is suitable for your garden and so we’ve put together this blog to consider them.
The time it takes from start to finish to measure, design and build either decking or a patio is something that needs to be considered before investing in either.
Without a doubt the build time is dependent on how big your garden is, what you want doing and materials that you wish to use. However, in most situations decking will be a quicker alternative to patios. If you are looking to get your garden ready for spring, hiring a landscaping Brighton company might be a better alternative to constructing a new patio.
Price and Costing
The price and costing of both decking and patios again varies greatly on the size and type of project needing to be done. Decking however is usually cheaper than buying paving for a patio depending on the type of wood used in decking.
When it comes to Patios, more intensive construction is potentially required to dig further into the ground. Depending on what state the ground is in, this can be a potentially expensive procedure.
Add Value to Your Home
Both of these options without a doubt add value to your home. By increasing the quality of your garden you increase your houses value.
It is important that if you are looking to increase the value of your home, you contact a professional landscaping Brighton service such as CPS Landscapes. They will provide you a high quality decking or patio and for the best price.
Which Style Best Suits Your Home?
This is an important point to consider. When choosing between a patio or decking, your choice should be partially dependant on the aesthetic of your home. If your house mainly wooden, possibly timber clad- then decking is the perfect choice.
Should your home be stone, a patio may be the better option. If you do not know which style best suits your home, contact a landscaping Brighton company such as CPS Landscapes for help and advice.
How Easy Are They to Customise?
Decking and Patios are different in terms of customisation. Decking is much easier to customise as it can easily be painted. Paving stones or whatever material you chose to make your patio from cannot be changed and customised as easily.
If your patio becomes stained from any form of spillage or mess, it is much harder to tackle whereas decking can easily be painted over. In this instance decking is definitely the superior option.
